Breaking the cycle of violence

The Office of Violence Prevention (OVP) uses a community-focused, public health approach to help ensure that everyone can be free from violence. We work to break the cycle of violence by addressing it at three points:

  • Preventing it before it begins
  • Intervening at the first sign of risk
  • Healing after it happens
